MEDIA REVIEWS

'Macroeconomic management is of great importance for the poor, who tends to pay more in times of crisis and gain less in times of booms. This volume rightly avoids providing a recipe for all countries, stressing instead the importance of country context in choosing macro policies.' - Francois Bourguignon, Senior Vice President for Development Economics and Chief Economist, World Bank

'At long last, a solid professional analysis of the interrelationships between macroeconomic policies and poverty, not only in theory but also in practice. UNRISD and Cornia merit the policy community's thanks and congratulations. One must pray that finance ministries and the IMF will now learn from it.' - Gerry Helleiner, Professor Emeritus in Economics, University of Toronto, Canada, and Chairman, International Lawyers and Economists Against Poverty (ILEAP)

'Doing macroeconomics to help the poor is just about 180 degrees out of sync with current policy practice. This book will help turn the policy world in the right direction by describing how pro-poor macro policies should be designed. It merits careful study everywhere.' - Lance Taylor, Arnhold Professor of International Cooperation and Development, New School for Social Research, USA

'This wide-ranging volume explores both the potential as well as the limitations of current thinking around 'pro-poor macroeconomics'. It also underscores the crucial importance of grounding development, employment and poverty reduction policies in sustainable macroeconomic policy.' - Jose Antonio Ocampo, Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs, United Nations

'The articles are firmly based in empirical evidence, which is refreshing...' - CAPSA Flash
